Well folks, many sites are publishing the news that Microsoft and Yahoo have officially agreed on a deal to merge their services. Although it is not a complete merger, Bing (Microsoft) will be powering Yahoo search over the next 10 years. Details are apparently yet to come, but for a more complete scoop read Nathania Johnson’s article over at search engine watch.

The days of chasing Google, Yahoo, and Bing/MSN are officially over. If they merge search engine results for SEO, traffic volume could be negatively impacted for many webmasters. Something tells me Google is going to come out a head on this one.

Keep Ranking!
